Number four seed David Ferrer booked his place in the Wimbledon quarter-finals, making it through to the last-eight in seven successive grand slam tournaments, following a four set victory over Ivan Dodig.

The 31-year-old recovered from a slow start against his Croatian opponent - who was supported by former Wimbledon champion Goran Ivanisevic - after arriving on Court Two late, conceding the first set after a tie-break which finished 7-3.

However, the Spaniard went on to win the next three sets 7-6 6-1 6-1, downing Dodig after an impressive fightback, much to the delight of the Wimbledon crowd.

After failing to win a point on Dodig's serve for four successive games in the second set, Ferrer broke three times in the third set, and twice in the fourth, to secure victory.

Ferrer - who lost to Andy Murray at the quarter-final stage last year - will now face either Juan Martin Del Potro  of Argentina or Italy's Andreas Seppi in the next round.

Elsewhere in the men's draw, world number 22, Jerzy Janowicz emerged victorious from his five-set match against Jurgen Melzer, the Pole beating the Austrian 3-6 7-6 6-4 4-6 6-4, to set up a quarter-final clash with fellow countryman Lukasz Kubot, who beat France's Adrian Mannarino in the last-16.
